sources, creating a beautiful visualization to tell a story at the neighborv level of how the city is growing. and some of the things you're seeing on the map here are a pipeline of information about both residential permits over the past decade or so, how has the city allocated permits throughout different neighborhoods in the city. and some of the other things you're seeing on the map is the approved businesses, the businesses are currently doing business in the city. one of the things we said once we started visualizing on the map the slow and more rapid growth of residential -- residential property in soma and then in 2011 you just saw obviously a huge residential boom in the downtown area. so, we've just actually -- we're a company in southern california. we just relocated up here, small little office in san francisco, trying to better understand the community moving at a fast pace here. part of doing that is working with the city and better understanding how we can support open data. so, thank you.

we open up and establish within our city contracts that the companies that do service for us do not own the data that they generate from us, that they will have a contractual obligation to share that with the city so that we can mine that to the rest of the city, that's advance of opportunities for everybody. i know at the heart of sharing this data, there is going to be a lot more jobs created, a lot more people out therein venting new ways to establish small businesses that will improve the way we live and work and play in the city. and we look forward to great events like a super bowl host or something like that, we're going to be able to give people a really rich amount of programs that they could access from here to santa clara to san jose. we can act regionally with our data and we can join and continue to be in the great city of san francisco. so, i want to thank all of the people, all of the different starting up companies here and those that are inventing with us, thank them for celebrating innovation month in such a exemplary way. and i think we're going to have a lot
compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have people actually talking about it because the demand side, as we were talking about it, will be there because there is going to be someone there. there have to be people working with it who are getting out there. i think this is what this city is going to be really powerful. in terms of other cities doing as well, chicago is doing some really interesting stuff. scary cool stuff. they're taking 3 in 1 data, pothole request and crime report and matching it up with social media. they're getting this really deep and rich picture of wha

the conversation in the city from the idea that one, domestic violence is specifically a woman's issue. is not. that's why i asked the captain in terms of this issue of integration. it is not a women's issue solely, wholly, or inevitably. it is a community issue. is a social issue. it is a health issue. it is a multidimensional issue. it is not as we know, a private issue. is a community issue and so as we are thinking along that continuum from preventative to intervention to actually ending hopefully our domestic violence, we have to certainly acknowledge the fact that the needle is moving. and that the conversation is broadening and i think we are getting more specific and more expert amongst all the various departments. around the issue of domestic valiance. i'm very glad that we are having this meeting this evening. that is another milestone in terms of the conversation around how do we view and what are our values not only about intervening but presenting domestic violence in our community and understanding that he cannot, will not, i should not exist in any particular sil
of church and state? shouldn't the city not -- i think this is san francisco friends from the quakers. i have to say, generally i'm against nonprofits because even though you're a nonprofit, you still compete for buildings and then you throw out tenants. so, i would ask, has san francisco city attorney looked into this, the city's aligning with a religion, should they distance themselves on that grounds? >> thank you. are there other members of the public who wish to speak on this item, item number 5? seeing none, public comment is closed. do we have a motion? >> so moved. >> we have a motion to send this item forward with recommendation and we can do that without objection. thank you. item 6. >> item number 6, resolution establishing the appropriations limit for fy 2012-2013 pursuant to california constitution article xiii b. >> thank you very much for this item from the controller's office. we have [speaker not understood]. >> thank you, members of the committee. neil levinson, [speaker not understood] from the controller's office. i'll be very brief and happy to answer questions. this
of the san francisco police department since the sanctuary city ordinance was passed over 30 years ago, before i became a police officer, it isn't just something we need to train to. it's always know. i can assure anyone watching on tv at this commission, san francisco is a sanctuary city. we are here to help regardless of your country of origin or language. we are working hard as you can tell to figure out the language. chief beal spoke about me doing those interviews. i don't speak korean and chinese. we do spanish radio once a month, speak with marcos gutierrez about whatever they want to talk about; sanctuary city has come up more than once. it is not a training issue for us. it is department policy. it is city law. it is what we have been raised on. >> does the department have the authority to control that information within its own database so it is and shared with the federal authorities? >> what information is that? >> my understanding is there is no opt in and out. maybe commissioner chan can say something. >> secure communities is a post-arrest situation, a sheriff
cities. los angeles, san diego, new york to look at how they are provided budget analyst services. so, i think it's from the comfort of actually having a contract that you could then further direct me to provide that information to the committee. >> okay. and if we were to go forward with an rfp and eventually that rfp would have to come back for approval, could we have it be flexible such that if there was a decision by this body at a later time to actually do a contract, any type of proposal we would be flexible enough to make sure that contract is not existing at the same time as we bring in folks? >> yes, supervisor chu. there is currently in the contract the ability to cease contracting with the joint venture at the board's convenience. we would, of course, have something in the new contract once approved for that same convenience for the board should they choose to go in that direction. and, of course, we would dovetail service -- we would allow for the dovetailing of services to occur if the board chose to bring the house. >> okay. for this item, i'd like to hear from my colleague
a lot about city process, city law, public law. i think it's a great choice and i look forward to this whole commission. i'm really happy to be here. thank you. >> thank you, mr. moscone. >> good afternoon, supervisors, my name is robert woods and i would like to say this, that it's not the candidates that i speak towards, the candidates are very much so qualified. i speak to the process in terms of how those names was developed. when the commission, the successor commission, have a meeting and no one shows up in the meeting is canceled and then you come here and you see people being nominated and the community have not been involved in it other than within their little close circles and i say to you that we look forward to them being on board but we question, we will question the decisions that they make because the decisions that they make will affect the community and since we did not have any input up front, we will question them and we will want to know why and who developed, who there in the car with in terms of who they make these decisions for. and that's what we hav
years and a narrow casting example. but the new york city subway used to have posters written spanish advertising a gay, lesbn domestic violence hot line. that's how fine grained it get in new york new york city on the subway pushing welfare programs. it informs and pushes them. >> but getting back to the poverty program and they're pushing food stamps and welfare programs and they have a tendency to keep poor people poor. once you are on the dole it is hard tore get off. >> it is. incentives are wrong. they encourage people to stay on it. it is it a growth crisis. economic growth is easy and if we get the policies right, a lot of these people get off of it and i agree with victoria that we have a welfare industrial complex. and in order to keep these people on food stamps, we got to -- >> and creating a sense of depeppedency from fdr and bill clinton and senators . is is not just republicans and conservatives. >> that is it a valid. if you want to reform welfare to resolve the problems that you are raising. they are valid problems . we will not mix it up by condemning people who need

, which had control over direct services for the entire county of santa barbara and all the six cities within so we had to cover a substantial amount of area, much larger geographally than san francisco but hardly as dense. so my concerns as a resident in the octavia plan boundaries are the preservation of open space, development of greater community gardening opportunities for low to moderate to affordable income residents, the keeping of upper market street at least as a sunshine corridor so that the building, the new growth and developments occurring along the market street corridor don't overshadow the upper market street. i have been quite concerned with two years ago there was a lot of holes in the ground, to put it plainry, walking up and down market street and throughout the market-octavia corridor and boundaries, most of those holes have been virtually plugged up. there is not much vacant land level for development. this has occurred in the last 24 months, it's very easy to see, the disappearing vacant land. in any event i would like to also, i am also very interested in p
on the current radio facilities conditions, including recommendations on the future use and city department user needs, technical requirements, timeline of funding. so, would you agree to come back and present to the board on your findings on this work? >> yes. >> okay, great. and the same with the -- would you accept this recommendation by the budget analyst? >> the department of emergency management? * >> yes, supervisors, department of emergency management agrees with those recommendations. we'll be very happy to come back and provide an update. >> thank you so much. you know, i know that this has come back to the budget committee several times at this point. i think it's great that we're updating our radio system that is out of date and, you know, probably is not as efficient as it could be. also doesn't currently comply with fcc standards. i'm glad we're able to do this finally. but i still continue to have a lot of questions. we have three different potential radio systems right now. one is, of course, proposed regional bay web motorola system which is no longer and is now being reviewed b
drunk, killing one of his teammates. this comes one week african can city chiefs player belcher killed his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself. nbc's sara story has the story for us this morning and the tragic news inside the nfl. >> it appears as if he was traveling at a high rate of speed at which time his vehicle touched or impacted the outside curb of the service road, causing his vehicle to flip at least one time. >> reporter: irving police say josh brent was drive whgt mercedes flipped and landed on its top. the passenger was jerry brown jr., a linebacker on the cowboys' practice squad. officers say the car was on fire when they arrived on scene. >> when our officers arrived on scene, mr. brent was removing -- or dragging mr. brown from the vehicle. >> reporter: investigators say brown was unresponsive and later died at a hospital. they say speed and alcohol were factors in the crush. brent failed a field sobriety test. >> based on his performance of those tests, along with our officers' observations and the conversations they had with him, he was placed under arrest for
corporation within the city. and in general i really would like having been a life long resident of san francisco and the city of san francisco overall, especially downtown, except for some of the new skyscrapers, has retained a lot of its old character. the mission district has not been developed that much, it's retained a lot of its character. however, i see a lot of the development going on right now where there's mixed use with commercial retail and upscale condominiums. i see this occurring throughout the boundary areas of the market-octavia corridor. but i'm also interested in our public aesthetic despite our decreasing square footage for higher income earners decreasing and decreasing opportunities for low income residents, seniors and those disabled within the boundaries of this planned district, it's important to be able to preserve and keep these as well as develop new opportunities with local nonprofit agencies which are developing such as affordable housing opportunities for a variety -- for diversity of our population which really needs the assistance, not only do we ha
put up to protect city residents, visitors and the park land during the construction. this is a very large event with very large heavy machinery operating throughout various times of the event. and fencing is frankly required, as it would be at any construction site, during the build and the tear down. in recent years we've actually encouraged another planet to be more deliberate during the construction of the events, whereas three years ago we began the construction on the friday before the event. our gardeners over the last few years have advocated for us to begin that construction a couple days earlier so that it can go at a slower pace and we can be ensured the park is protected better. we do work to minimize the impact of the fencing. it is phased, the construction, so it begins in the polo fields and expands out into the surrounding meadows as the construction begins in those meadows. we do work after the event to then phase the breakdown so that the breakdown happens in that surrounding meadows, first in those meadows reopen to the public first, and it is completed lastly at t
question? >> i am wondering if justis is any different. >> i know their systems in the city and county of seven san francisco to collect to colect, for background checks, as far as justis replacing the cable system, justis will assist individual departments in creating the roll up reports. we have not received whether to the technical steering committee or the justis council, and requirements to connect federally. >> i asked because of my background. i was curious because one thing that was helpful about the cable system is that you could do a check without reporting someone to immigration. i was curious about that. who analyzes the data? you should is the capabilities and the types of reports that we could pull. is their body that will pull the status of reports and doing an analysis on a regular basis? >> each department analyzes their data. the source of the data has to verify the data. they also have to be able to give permission for other departments to use that data. the analysis belongs at the departmental level. what we do is that once the police department says okay,
will be helpful. i worked well with the city and the oaklands. i first heard about the cta in grad school. i was studying as inner local inner regional body. my interest in transportation, i'm a computer and -- commuter and i like to serve the city. >> do you see yourself having a particular focus of priority as a member of the cse? >> two things, i would like to -- my interest are basically west to east and east to west since i live in the sun set. i'm also curious to see how the brt come through. >> okay. any comments or questions? thank you mr. goldsmith. any other candidate for district four seat or district six seat? we have any candidates for district nine come forward. if you're interested in making a statement. >> i enjoyed my role on the citizen's advisory committee. being a committee member who held them accountable and transparent. additionally i say my over ten years of work in the community, working in nonlot ofs and serving on the community board give me a wide perspective of issue that's many communities have. getting around san francisco whether it's by foot, by bus, by car,
by the kansas city police show jovan belcher hours before he apparently killed his girlfriend and then himself. the first dash cam video you see here shows police catching to belcher. he was not arrested, and he told police he was going to an apartment to the see a woman. listen to what police told him. >> you live right here? then you need to just go upstairs, dude. >> okay, that's going to be your best bet. >> we're trying to cut you a break here. >> take a look here, second dash cam video from five hours later, officers responding to a second belcher 911 call. he had apparently already killed the mother of his child and shot himself at the chief's kansas city practice facility. listen now to the officers learning who is behind the violence. >> we have a confirmed shooting, it is, i believe, belcher, plays for the chiefs. we have confirmed that, so -- >> well, egypt's president says he has heard the people, and is giving up most of the power he took in a recent decree, but they call the switch a farce. his decision is not retro active, meaning the actions he took since the original decree wi
sources -- >> right, that has to be the case with transportation project we work on in the city. transportation money is limited and we have to look at the utility of the project in relation to the land use that's adjacent and see if there's a way to capture it it. the other side of it is, this potential oakdale cal train station is too important. it's too good of an opportunity separated transit access for folks around that station to downtown and to the airport in places south of valencia and somehow include it because of the bridge work. that's the origin of this whole effort. it's not my favorite sport to close city streets. this is a way that you can have your cake and eat it. we can have the connector road, but we can have this potentially fabulous connection from that part of town into downtown where employment is going at the same time. in the process perhaps give the poc a more useable piece of land where currently we have industrial uses that are -- i would surmise based on highest use of that space and a street that's definitely under utilized. >> great, thank you. co
